Listening - it's been a Joni weekend, with a dash of Natalie Merchant and a pinch of Liz Phair.
Making - Lucy and I are making skirts this week - floral, gathered at the waist, mid-length, decorative pockets. We washed the fabric and cut out the pattern days ago, but got derailed by illness. Sewing is like a horse for me; I have to keep getting on (with) it. Otherwise I get scared of the machine again and procrastinate.
Planning - to finish the our home schooling reregistration documentation. That's a mouthful! Our programs are planned and printed. I'm battling annoyance at recent changes which mean we no longer get a visit from an Authorised Person - I enjoyed those visits, talking over our programs, chatting about books and resources - but must now register by documentation. This means an unearthly amount of photocopying, wasteful in the extreme. It also means a certain amount of ill-feeling towards the Board of Studies, for saving themselves work and in the process, adding to mine. Not to mention their insistence that I provide a full application and program for Arwen, even though she has two months of home schooling left.
Hoping - for a cheering week. I'm shrinking back in dread of the month. After the holidays it contains too many appointments and re-re-scheduled surgery. Not nice.
A Thought -
